Intel announced its 7th generation of processors a few months ago, at Computex 2016 in Taipei. The new line will be codenamed Kaby Lake, and will be available in computers all over the world at the beginning of 2017.

Even though Intel fully presented the Kaby Lake line, there are still some details that have yet to be made public. However, there are some details available to the public, that you probably didn’t know about. Hexus.net recently found Intel’s PDF document that reveals part names, base frequencies and more. Reportedly, Intel shipped this document to all manufacturers and partners, but also made it publically available on its site.

Besides other info valuable to manufacturers, the document shows something that’s probably most interesting to users – names of the new desktop processors. You can check the full table with updated processors below:

The list consists of Kaby Lake Core i5, Core i7, and a new Xeon E3 chip with their base clock speeds. However, we’ll still have to wait a little bit more for some additional details, like core counts, TDPs, or the number of threads.

As you can see from the table, the best Core i7 processor from the Kaby Lake generation is  the Core i7-7700K with a base clock of 4.2GHz. Intel’s fastest Core i5 will be the i5-7600K with a base clock of 3.8GHz.

The new line of Intel’s processors should be available in January 2017 to customers. It will come with some brand new features, like USB 3.1 support, support for HDCP 2.2 (High-Bandwidth Digital Copy Protection), better power efficiency, and more. However, as we mentioned before, the Kaby Lake processors won’t support Windows 7 and older operating systems, which will definitely leave some users unsatisfied.
